Geocache Description:

Ample parking, with a short level walk to cache, which is hidden in a camouflaged bag.

Brought you to the north west point of the island where there are miles of excellent beaches in this part of sunny Fuerte Ventura, even on a busy day they are too big to be overcrowded.
Just south of here there are the lagoons, where most tourists go to sample the powder white sand and the clear blue sea, separated into safe lagoons making it safe for families and easy for swimming.
Just to the south of El Cotillo is where most of the surfing, windsurfing, increasingly kitesurfing, is done off the main beach. But do take care swimming here, it can be very dangerous. On big days it can be monstrous.
Other great beaches on the island - the above mentioned Lagoons, Playa Blanca (between Puerto del Rosario and the airport), any beach along the sand dunes just outside Corralejo, Tindaya (if you can find it) and Sotavento (just past Costa Calma).

Since 2003 the developers have gone mad, there are plans for a Golf course.

Thanks to Waltraud and to 'ettt' for the GERMAN translation
Near by cache Castillo de El Toston (GC11JA1)

Genügend Parkmöglichkeiten und ein kurzer Spaziergang zum Cache welcher in
einem getarnten Beutel versteckt ist.
Hier am Nort-Westlichsten Punkt der Insel wo es viele Kilometer wunderbaren
sonnigen Strand von Fuerte Ventura gibt welche so gross sind dass sogar an
stark besuchten Tagen nicht überfüllt sein können.
Etwas südlicher gibt es Lagunen welche unter den Toristen für ihren
wunderbaren weissen Sand und dem klaren blauen Wasser bekannt sind. Diese
sind in kleinere Lagunen unterteilt welche daher auch sicher zum schwimmen
für Familien sind.
Im Süden von El Cotillo ist ein Surf- , Windsurf und tolles
Kitesurfinggebiet. Hier muss man daher beim schwimmen vorsichtig sein. An
manchen Tagen kann die See hier sehr gefährich und monstrous sein.
Andere grosse Strände auf dieser Insel - die ober erwähnten Lagunen, Playa
Blanca (zwischen Puerto del Rosario und dem Flughafen), alle Strände entlang
der Sand Dünen ausserhalb Corralejo, Tindaya (wenn du ihn findest) und
Sotavento (kurz nach Costa Calma).

Seit 2003 einige Planer verrückt geworden sind , gibt es hier Pläne einen
Golf Platz zu machen.

Danke an Waltraud und 'ettt' für die deutsche Übersetzung.
